Offaly Football Club Latest To See Facilities Vandalised

Last week, Portlaoise Athletic Club suffered the same fate.

A second sports organisation in the midlands has seen their facilities vandalised in the space of seven days. 

The committee of St. Carthages AFC in Offaly say it'll cost around €3,500 to repair the damage done to their windows and dressing rooms. 

It comes in the wake of a similar act of criminal damage at Portlaoise Athletic Club last week. 

St. Carthages Assistant Manager Seamus Holleran says it's a huge setback:

In a post on Facebook the St. Carthages say actions like this are devastating to rural clubs. 

They're going to run a last man standing competition in order to fundraise to repair the damage.
